if the device is based on a NS983x chip you might alter the Plustek
backend, simply by duplicate the EPSON1250 entry in the file
plustek-devs.c (around line 1673) and replace the device ID by
the one your scanner has. This should pass the backend by to
the LM983x test...
If you want me to provide a small LM983x test, simply say so ;-)

Anyway, let me know if you need more assistance...
